Together with Stop Climate Chaos Scotland and Take One Action, we’re running a series of events across Scotland in June to help you get involved in the campaign for climate action.

 

Climate Action Workshops

Scotland’s new Climate Change Bill should see us do our fair share of global climate action, deliver climate justice and set us on the pathway to a zero carbon future. But the government’s proposals so far don’t contain the ambition or the action needed to tackle the climate crisis. To win climate action, we need people power.

The workshops will explore ideas around climate justice, share information on the climate bill and how to influence it, and skills to help people get involved in the campaign. There will be training on how to meet and lobby your MSP, and a chance to meet up with others for local campaigning.

All workshops are free.

 

Not Without Us film tour

In partnership with Take One Action, we present a special film tour of Not Without Us – with a film screening following most of the June workshops. Not Without Us is a rousing documentary that connects the dots between decreasing biodiversity, indigenous land rights abuses, fossil-fuel driven economies, growing economic inequality and government inaction in the face of the greatest crisis engulfing our planet.

Putting frontline communities’ perspectives at its centre, Not Without Us immerses viewers in the moving, personal journeys of grassroots campaigners from across the globe as they attempt to harness the only force that can prevent catastrophic climate change: the will of the people.

We are delighted to be able to offer a subsidised ticket price to the film for those attending a workshop.If you wish to attend both the workshop and film in your city, make sure you book the workshop first to receive the link to the discounted film ticket!
